    Having a colonoscopy is important if you have a family history of colon cancer. My sister died from this because she was never tested for it and it spread before she knew it. I have has a couple of colonoscopies since but it has been several years since my last but I lost my job a couple of years ago and now I have a job that does not pay much and has no insurance. I'm in a high risk catagory and IF I can find insurance, it will be expensive. If your able to be tested do it.

    Dr. Kim is the best! I waited until 53 for my colonoscopy and had a large cancerous tumor. Dr. Kim was able to fix me up though, and he was wonderful through the whole process. The best doctor I have seen in my 53+ years. He actually cares.

    I have had four colonscopies throughout this process, and they are no big deal at all! Don't neglect this very important thing - it's a matter of life and death.
